Soon after going through line-up changes through the first few years the group eventually formed to become a duo with Pablo Araoz and Javier Fonseca. Creating the orginal Reggae sound fans have known to love.
After gaining recognition on Colombian radio in 2004 for their songs “Legal” and “Mutin,” the group hit the studio to record a full length album with the help of producer and fellow Reggae artist Sly Dunbar.
